Craig Karges is truly extraordinary! The “extraordinist” is an award-winning entertainer, a nationally recognized speaker and an author. Karges has made over four thousand appearances in seventeen countries on four continents and in all fifty states.
Craig Karges combines the art of magic with the science of psychology and the power of intuition to create the impression that nothing is impossible. Tables float, minds are read, metal bends and your imagination is challenged because you won’t believe your eyes! Dennis Miller, comedian and media personality, put it this way after seeing Karges perform, “This weirds me out!”
Audiences may be mystified when it comes to understanding how Craig Karges accomplishes what he does on stage but his popularity is no mystery at all.
From the entertainment oriented Tonight Show to the news oriented Larry King Live, Craig Karges has made over forty national television appearances. You’ve also seen him on CNN Headline News, Fox News Channel, CNBC, E! Entertainment Television, Lifetime Television, Wisdom Television and even SOAPnet! The extraordinist has starred in two, one-hour television specials. The sheer number and diversity of Karges’ television appearances is indicative of his widespread popularity.
Performance, the international touring talent weekly, named Craig Karges’ touring show, Experience the Extraordinary, one of the top five, variety/family shows in North America. Karges was in good company as the list also included the likes of illusionist David Copperfield and Disney on Ice. Performance magazine called the extraordinist’s performance “The next era in mystery entertainment.” American Entertainment Magazine named him one of the top five variety entertainers on the corporate circuit.
Craig Karges first became popular touring college campuses. He was named Entertainer of the Year six times by the National Association for Campus Activities (NACA). Past NACA award-winners include Bruce Springsteen and Jay Leno. NACA’s campus membership also voted Karges as Variety Entertainer of the Year for twelve consecutive years. The independent Campus Activities Magazine named Karges Entertainer of the Year on four occasions. In addition to Entertainer of the Year, the magazine also named Karges Best Performing Arts Attraction, Best Male Performer, Best Solo Act and Best Novelty Act.

The National Speakers Association (NSA) honored him with the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation and the CPAE Speaker Hall of Fame Award.
Craig KargesCraig Karges says that he does not possess supernatural powers, nor does he claim to perform as a psychic or a magician. While he acknowledges that he is an entertainer, and showmanship plays a role in what he does, he insists that he does not prearrange anything with members of the audience. Skeptical? The extraordinist offers $100,000, payable to charity, if anyone can prove he uses stooges or confederates from the audience to accomplish his demonstrations.
Craig Karges’ corporate client list ranges from McDonalds to AT&T and from NASA to the Mayo Clinic. Corporations have relied upon the extraordinist and his unique abilities not only to entertain their employees and clients, but also to motivate them. “Ordinary people are capable of extraordinary results because we all possess extraordinary capabilities. I communicate that message both verbally and visually,” Karges says.
In a shift of focus from entertainment to empowerment, Craig Karges created Ignite Your Intuition. This one-of-a-kind presentation does more than simply amaze and entertain. Participants learn memory techniques; their intuition is tested; and they are taught how to tap into their subconscious mind to enhance creativity, intuition and decision making. Ignite Your Intuition allows participants to experience greater personal power and achieve success more easily.
Craig Karges’ success in this area led to Ignite Your Intuition, the extraordinist’s first book, published by Health Communications, Inc. (best known for Chicken Soup for the Soul).
Craig Karges’ second book, The Wizard’s Legacy – A Tale of Real Magic, marked his debut as a novelist. The Wizard’s Legacy is a work of inspirational fiction which uses magic as a metaphor for life’s mysteries and documents the student-teacher relationship Karges had with his enigmatic great-uncle, Alain “Doc” DeLyle, who taught the extraordinist his special brand of magic of the mind.
Craig Karges’ third book, Extraordinary Tales – Stories from the Road is a celebration of thirty years of life on the road. The book consists of twenty-four short stories gathered from around the world and is one part travel memoir and one part encyclopedia of the paranormal and the extraordinary.
From Sardinia to Singapore and from Cancun to Cairo, Craig Karges’ performing schedule has taken him around the world, appearing at corporate events, theatres, universities and casino showrooms. “No matter where I perform, I try to make my audiences feel they are a part of something they have never experienced before and hopefully will never forget. My goal is to entertain my audiences through the creation of mystery and to open their minds to unlimited possibilities,” says Karges.

President, Office Furniture Dealers Alliance
“What a spell-binding performance you made at our annual conference! Your presentation actively engaged our members and more than lived up to our high expectations. While we anticipated some connection between your theme of opening one’s mind to all that’s possible and ours of ‘be at the top of your game,’ you did a masterful job of ensuring that our audience also made the linkage. Our spontaneous standing ovation when you ended the program said it all - truly an extraordinary demonstration that captured and held everyone’s full attention and stretched their minds.”
Executive Manager, Corporate Meetings & Events, Bayer CropScience
“Thank you for your third OUTSTANDING performance for Bayer. Again you wowed my crowd, engaging their minds for the evening closing. Each time you presented with a dynamic style whether it’s 150 people or 750 people you have exceeded Bayer’s goals. We appreciated the customized element of your presentations when you close with our corporate message. Although I have had the privilege of seeing you 3 times - I am always awestruck. Thank you for making Bayer look good.”
Manager, AT&T Southeast Region
“One thing I’ve learned over the past 9 years while planning meetings is that picking the right speakers and entertainers is critical to the success of the conference. Everything else can be on point, but if the speaker and entertainment is a miss it will reflect negatively on the overall conference feedback. Having said that, I could not have been more pleased with your performance at the four AT&T Southeast conferences. As you will recall from our initial telephone interview, the conference objectives were to reward, inspire and re-energize this group of dedicated individuals. For the evening entertainment, I was searching for someone exceptional who would amaze, motivate the imagination and demonstrate the possibilities when we tap into the power of the human mind. I thought you would be the perfect fit. Four performances and more than 1400 people later, you did everything your write-up promised and more! You thoroughly entertained the audience, challenged their minds and left them talking. I could not be more satisfied with the end results! Craig, you gave us exactly what we needed and more. It was a pleasure to sit in the audience and watch them experience your presentation. Thank you for what many wrote were the best conferences we have EVER had!!”
Regional Marketing Manager, Atmos Energy
